Boothroyd: Keen to keep Blyth

The 21-year-old could be facing a month on the sidelines having sustained the injury in training on Friday, with the Cobblers awaiting the results of a scan which will determine the full extent of the damage.

Blyth recently extended his stay at Sixfields until November 2 but could well now spend the rest of that period in the treatment room.

Speaking after his side's goalless home draw with Morecambe on Saturday, Boothroyd said: "We'll be talking to Leicester to see if we can do anything with it, maybe stop it and start it again.

"It will depend on the extent of his injury and we will be guided by them but hopefully he will be okay."

Fellow Cobblers striker Clive Platt also injured his calf in training on Friday and faces a spell out of action.

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
